Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

I have Dipole on sides with direct radiating in the rear. Currently the rears are at THX recommended real close, on either side of my projector about 18". I prefer having them half as wide as the fronts.

Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

Tri-poles are good at reducing the null effect at the listener position that you get with Dipoles..
With a front firing woofer and the forward and back firing Mid/highs, you get a more encompassing surround sound..and I've never felt the need to go to 7.1..

Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

I took a look at the M&K tripoles a while back. The idea intrigued me, however at that stage, it would have meant a total redesign. The new surrounds will be something new, however I get to simply recycle the drivers I currently own.

7.1 is amazing, especially fully discrete stuff on BD. THX Cinema 2 processing also does a wonderful job of 5.1 and 5.1EX program.

Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

Now that I have finally finished my screen wall I thought I should finally contribute to the thread.

The screen is a 130" (diagonal) scope screen, which I think is 3.03m wide x 1.28m high. It's 850mm up from the floor (740mm off the stage)

The front row sit about 3.4m back from the screen, the second row around 5.2m on a 440mm riser.

Screen wall

I'm still waiting for my projector to arrive so will post some photos and screen shots once it's all setup.

Cheers,
Simon

Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

That's a nice size screen Simon...You forgot to mention that it's an AT screen!
Do you have any other shots taken from further back, to get an idea of the room overall?

Re: Anamorphic Projection Theaters

As promised here are a couple photos towards my screen from the back corner of the room. It should give you a bit more of a feel of the room

Over the seats
Show a little more stars

Cheers,
Simon
